The chief executive of Harbour Energy and the head of the recently-rebranded North Sea Transition Authority will headline a major industry conference next month.

Harbour’s Linda Cook and Andy Samuel of the North Sea Transition Authority  (formerly the OGA) will deliver keynote speeches at the annual conference from Offshore Energies UK (OEUK).

With geopolitical and economic unpredictability dominating the news, OEUK’s chief executive, Deirdre Michie OBE will chair a panel session focused on ensuring security of energy supply.

Linda Cook said: “Given the challenges introduced by a global pandemic, the war in Ukraine and implications for Russian exports, and an uneven journey towards a lower carbon economy, there’s perhaps never been a more important time to discuss energy and energy security.

“I look forward to sharing perspectives from an oil and gas producer and engaging in dialogue around how the energy industry can continue to work with other stakeholders to further the aims of the North Sea Transition Deal.”

The event, on Tuesday May 24 at the P&J Live in Aberdeen and sponsored by Worley, is themed: “The North Sea Transition Deal: delivering cleaner energy securely”.

Signed in March 2021, the deal with government committed the industry to drastic emissions reduction targets and set out to create 40,000 jobs in new energies by 2030.

The agenda features sessions on the deal’s five themes of Carbon Capture and Storage, Hydrogen, Energy Supply Decarbonisation, Supply Chain Transformation and People and Skills.

Andy Samuel said: “The North Sea Transition Deal is a great plan on paper, but we can’t let it gather dust. We must turn ideas into action and see real delivery on carbon storage, platform electrification, and hydrogen, while still pushing ahead with ensuring the UK’s energy security.

“The offshore energy industry is strong on innovation and this year is critical. I look forward to sharing the NSTA’s perspective and hearing industry’s progress at this timely OEUK conference.”

Deirdre Michie added: “Our conference is the ideal arena for offshore energy producers and our world-class supply chain to learn more about Deal and the role they play in delivering clean and secure energy to the UK.

“Over the past year, great progress has been achieved through our work with the UK government to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and invest in innovative low -carbon technology to help us deliver the skills, innovation and infrastructure required to meet the UK’s carbon reduction targets by 2050.”
